I'm in... but I'll need to take leave of absence in the spring and fall to do my own farming!

Good luck in the search. I think my brother-in-law found his guys through the local paper.

So, a bit off topic but, what kind of "classic car projects" you working on?.

May as well keep your thread at the top, what engines ? Small block, big block? LS?

Haha,
The '63 nova has a 383 stroker, while the '67 will be getting an LS3.

'67 will be next years project.

As funny as it sounds, or as unbelievable as it sounds, my full-time guy can't be bothered to work on it with me, even though it's in a heated shop. So I say, fine, go home sit on your azz playing video games and look after your family that way buddy.

I am in a real need of good help, gotta make about 6 call backs of resumes this weekend.

Looking for 2 guys full time.

Just some words of wisdom from experience.
NEVER make pay offers up front, EVER!
It didn't take me long to figure this out either but here is what happens or had happened to me. I ended up with a pile of punks wanting a job that were never there on a weekend, the 4th of July would mutilate thier brains for at least two weeks and half ways through harvest if they made it that far couldn't make payments on the overpriced pickup they were driving that they had to find a different job and go back home to mom's.

I know offering good pay is good advertising but you may find it's easier to get a feel for a guy and mentally get an idea if ya even want him and then ask him how much he would like to earn. It may surprise you what little someone in need of a good job will ask for. This gives you a chance to see what he is worth and if ya like him give him a few small raises or what I find works well is do a job and if all goes well without accidents and such reward him with bonuses. Things like that seem to drive them to be there.

Always remember, half the battle is just getting them to show up. Once ya got them wanting to come to work the rest is easy.

The best workers aren't usually running around looking for top dollar, they are looking more for meaningful work and a place that treats them with respect and dignity and allows them the freedom to use their intelligence and expect to be given responsibility. If someone is just looking to make big money, they will just drop you as soon as they find someone paying more.


It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!
